About Kay Delk

I have lived here most of my life. My husband and I have a small sheep farm and we use our English Shepherd dogs: Drover, KAT, BOO and Journey to help us with the sheep. Anyone of the dogs may be seen moving the sheep from pasture to pasture . The soft tinkling bells on the sheep adds an old world charm...

We have two horses Tuff and Cheyanne currently 4 friendly ducks!

I love this land and living here.

Why Kay Delk chose Denton

My Great great great grandfather Wyatt Nance owned this and most of the land in this area in the 1800's ...My roots are deep. I feel it. I love Jackson Creek. The mountains, the people, this farm, and my animals . This is a special place . One beautiful sunset, a whippoorwill song or a pair of Bob White Quail will sing for you...Maybe a grey or red fox or maybe a deer will walk about...Or my sheep quietly talking about their days work while their bells softly play... And it will be special to you as well.

What makes this cottage unique

The views of the sunsets from the porch are unequaled.

I have furnished the Shepherd's Cottage with my family dishes and furniture. The view of the pond from the front bedroom any time of the year is amazing.

Thanks Kay and Les the place was perfect. Our entire family enjoyed everything about your home. We had no problems but if we did we were welcome to call or ask. Great owners beautiful place. Guys caught some fish a very appreciated distraction from work. We all went to the North Carolina ZOO about 20-25 minutes away. All the beds were very comfortable. Thanks again hope to be able to visit again one day. The Watsons

Loved this place! Very charming. Gorgeous views. Perfect for our little dog. We love antiques and I love that you have them all throughout this unique house. Since we have relatives in the area, we will hopefully be back!

I loved everything about it!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely fabulous. The house is adorable & is fully stocked with everything you need to feel 'at home'. The house itself is pretty big & the front porch is great. We are from the area, but moved away a couple years ago so we were looking for a place large enough where our family & friends in the area could come visit with us & cookout - this was absolutely perfect. We went fishing in the pond & caught a few bass & brim. And the sunset over the pond... oh my goodness. Spectacular! We hope to come back again & again.... it couldn't have been more amazing.

A peaceful and homey delight

  • 5 of 5

What a delight! We were staying with Kay and Les for work related reasons, but loved the moments we were able to steal away in the mornings and evenings. What a retreat! Exactly what a postcard feels like for what you imagine North Carolina to be.
